I just don't want to see the Bengals beat themselves in this one. The Steelers are scum but "always" find a way to win, by any means necessary etc. It's that kind of toughness we've been needing to show for a long time. Play like we did in the first half last night and it's gonna be a bloodbath! Got to turn the corner, lose the fear that our players and staff have for them and beat them in our house. No doubt the officials will be looking out for hits on Ben especially so gotta play smart. That said I'd love to see Hubbard drive that bastard a few feet under the turf ;) 

Enjoy your week guys :)

Oh Geno will get him atleast once

do you know that 2 loses could throw them into 4th place as well

Just remember the head to heads. Even if they drop to 4-3 they still have the win over the Ravens. 

Beat the Steelers this week and they own another tiebreaker.

I actually think the Steelers will lay off the blitzing.  Mixon needs to have a huge day.  Get to Fat Boy and wrap his arms up.  Go for the ball.

The Chiefs game will be interesting.  They'll be coming off getting exposed by the Patriots on Sunday Night Football.  The Patriots will show the blueprint to slowing down the Chiefs offense.  That game in KC will be more winnable than we think.

I guarantee the Bengals used the Pats blueprint to best the Dolphins.  That’s great the NE goes against them the week before Cincy!

Heard on the radio only 17 of the 53 active Bengals for that playoff loss remain on the team.    Hard to believe. 

Yep and that shows us how serious the front office was about a culture change.  They have bet the house on young, unproven talent and so far it is working

They are, but we saw how they played at Carolina (a likely playoff team).

My guess? They squeak one out against Pitt Sunday and get Carolina'd in KC on national TV.  But if they can take the Bucs at home after that, they can still go into the Bye Week 6-2.   Then the schedule gets easier outside of the Saints at PBS, other than the division games.

Shula - if Burfict and Brown had played against Carolina - do they control Cam?  Maybe my homerism is clouding my judgement but Hardy Nickerson Jr and Nich Vigil were horrendous that game

The play of the linebackers (or lack thereof) is as equally important as that of the o-line.
I've heard people say that the front four should be doing much more than what they have.  While I may agree, I think part of that is the linebackers can't cover for shit and RB's and TE's allow for quick passes.
The front four could be getting to the QB with much more frequency if the linebackers were better and didn't allow as much.

I think this is where the Steelers game concerns me.  Heck, it's where all the games this year concern me.
Take care of that, and this team is going to have a real shot at making some noise beyond the regular season.

By virtue of Browns/Steelers tie;  tie breakers will not be a factor between Bengals and them unless they tie later on in the season. 

11-5 beats 10-5-1 but trumps 10-6.    

Browns/Steelers have to match wins to beat Ravens/Bengals.  

Beating them this week puts them 3 back in the win column.  Not impossible but very dubious with 10 games to go.  

Losing to them puts them 1 back.

Heard on the radio this morning that Preston Brown will miss this game due to his ankle that was reinjured against the Dolphins.
Talk about one group of players that cannot afford to lose someone !!!

The thought was that Ross should be back for the offense, so that should be helpful.

Yeah I didn’t figure in that Pitt and Cleve already tied once.  Good point

Looks like John Ross is out again.  This concerns me.

His only consistent purpose seems to be to absorb coverage.  I think Malone can do that.

AJ Green dropped the ball and the offense sucked! 

Why can't the bengals ever beat the steelers, because they dont make the plays they should! Change that please!
